Garden Fertilizer

Asked April 7, 2013, 9:17 AM EDT

What is the best all around fertilizer for a garden in the Sleepy Hollow area of Campbell County? I do till in lawn clippings and some wood ash.

Organic matter such as lawn clippings and manure improve soil tilth and add nutrients. Commercial fertilizers need a soil test to get the NPK to optimum levels. Wood ash is definitely not good as it increases the alkali levels that are frequently too high already in WY soil.
